I am sure that my Norwegian friends will wonder why I am writing about an oddly named horse familiar only to racing fans on the eastern shore of Maryland (US). Googoo Gaagaa established a 2YO trotting colt World Record of 1:56h taken at Ocean Downs, a tiny ocean resort track. To date, Googoo Gaagaa has won all six of his lifetime starts at Ocean Downs in the Maryland Sires program with earnings of $38,512. His last three starts have been won by a combined 90 lengths, and his 1:56h win found him ahead by an incredible 41 lengths. Holy Secretariat! Well, maybe I exaggerate. Nevertheless, this is an impressive young horse.
What is his breeding? His sire is Cam’s Rocket p,3, 1:52 $234,164 (Cam’s Card Shark – Queen of Rock – Meadow Skipper), who has stood a leisurely stallion career for six years in Illinois and Maryland. Cam’s Rocket won New Jersey Sire Stakes races at 2 and 3, and his most productive year was at 5 when he won $80,000 in Invitationals and Opens at small Midwestern tracks. To date, Cam’s Rocket has sired only 23 pacing starters, 3 of which have taken a record of 1:55 and won a collective $353,009.
Plus one trotter, Googoo Gaagaa. Here is his pedigree:*
